My wife used this book when she took her former employer to an employment tribunal. The advice is well laid out and informative. This book along with an online legal advice centre was enough to secure an out of court settlement.

for the lay person who has no legal training this really does set out some essential knowledge which is a great help if your are defending yourself. Helps you tackle some of the games played by the other side

This book was required as part of the reading material whilst studying for my LLM in Employment Law. It is extremely well written (although aimed at the Claimant and so a little one-sided, it provides a great deal of useful information).

This is a clear, simple and straightforward guide that tells the reader how to get the best result both at an ET and from the negotiation process that precedes it. The articles are well written, occasionally funny (very unusual in a legal tome) and provide practical information. All of this is backed by additional articles published on the authors website. All in all, highly recommended!

THE ART OF WINNING AT A TRIBUNAL: THE DEFINITIVE HOW-TO BOOK

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

‘How useful,’ says Cox J, ‘to be able to reach for a book like this and find, all in one place, sensible and realistic guidance on every conceivable aspect of employment legislation.’ This ‘rare gem’ as the New Law Journal has described it, is less a law book as such, than an overwhelmingly practical guide to the conduct of an employment tribunal.

Unlike most practitioner titles published by the estimable LAG (Legal Action Group), this book is aimed at helping those who are not qualified to navigate their way through the often intricate procedures and pitfalls of an employment tribunal, including claimants acting for themselves or their unqualified, or partly qualified advisers.

However, also note the usefulness of this book for lawyers: those who find themselves involved in tribunal work only occasionally, or specialist employment lawyers who will find this book, with its practical plain-speaking approach, a valuable assistant in helping them explain tribunal matters to their often uncomprehending clients.

Logically structured, the book is divided into chapters that broadly correspond to the sequence of employment tribunal proceedings. Practical guidance on each stage of proceedings is methodically delivered chapter by chapter, while at the same time, alerting hopeful claimants to the unwritten rules inherent in the decision making process. The book demystifies the procedures as well as the jargon which emerges as an inescapable part of the tribunal process.

This new fourth edition has been updated to include, most importantly, the new employment Tribunal Rules of procedure 2013, plus useful advice on tribunal fees, as well as guidance on the Early Conciliation Process shortly due to come into force. Those fees of course, are at the centre of Cunningham and Reed’s very sound advice as to whether or not a claimant should go ahead with a claim. Think not about what you’ll get, (probably an unrealistic hope), but what it will cost you to get it – is the central message.

Then there is the time factor. ‘Read this first: time limits’ cautions the headline on the first page of the text, followed by ‘read this second’ and eventually ‘read this third: mitigation’. In other words, if you have lost your job, get cracking and start assembling your evidence now – it may be months before you get a hearing – and do read this easy-to-read book, with its wealth of resources for those wanting further information on cases, statutes, statutory instruments and so forth.

The publication date is stated as at 13 November 2013.

Excellent book with wealth of information to get the inside of tribunal proceedings.

Would save you lot of money and help to avoid troubles if anyone decides to represent them self in a tribunal.

This is a really useful guide, even with the new tribunal rules. It helps you to understand what to expect, what to provide, and most importantly, how to prepare for your case as a claimant.
